This course will teach you how to use the Generative Shape Design tools. You will learn how to create wireframes and surfaces. You will also learn about the concept of hybrid design and how to use it while creating wireframes and surfaces. This course covers only those Generative Shape Design tools that are available with a MD2 license.
